Mine Ain Dear Somebody

Melody - "Were I obliged to beg"

Robert Tannahill

When gloaming treads the heels of day,
And birds sit cow'ring on the spray,
Alang the flowery hedge I stray
To meet mine ain dear somebody.

2. The scented brier, the fragrant bean,
The clover bloom, the dewy green,
A' charm me, as I rove at e'en,
To meet mine ain dear somebody.

3. Let warriors prize the hero's name,
Let mad Ambition tow'r for fame,
I'm happier in my lowly hame,
Obscurely blest with somebody.
